by design the DAY-TIME-RUNNING lights are not intended to be turned off by choice. When you start the 99 blazer with the parking brake on, the DTR lights are off. When you release the parking brake they come on. When you park again and apply the parking brake the DTR lights will stay on, unless you stop the engine and re-start the engine. Since the DTR lights are inter-wired to the regular headlights, they can not be defeated without affecting the regular headlights.
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.
Fuse for parking lights probably blown.
You can, but not while it's running. Before you turn your key, you have to set the parking brake, not all the way but just a bit and then start the Blazer and the lights should stay off.
Chevrolet Blazer parking brake can be adjusted with the adjustment screw on the parking brake pad. The parking brake can also be adjusted with the parking brake cable.
Most likely a fuse or a bad ground.
Fuse, wiring, bulbs
On a 1998 Chevy Blazer, the parking brake switch is located on the top of the parking brake assembly. There are 3 bolts that hold the switch to the parking brake assembly.
What light? Headlights / Parking lights can only be turned off while in park. turn the engine off, set the parking brake. Start the engine..... as soon as you remove the parking brake the lights will come back on
Try applying parking brake
In this order only. Turn engine off. Depress parking brake. Turn engine on. Lights will turn off. To turn lights back on relase parking brake.
You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights.
Just pull the parking brake up one click. It won't engage the brake, but it bypasses the headlights.
Check fuse # 3 , that is a 15 amp fuse for your parking lights if all 4 don't work
Sounds like the switch is bad. You can buy a replacement switch at any automotive parts store and they are not that hard to install. Also check the fuse as sometimes the headlights have their own fuse while the parking/brake/back-up lights have their own.
Possible ground issue at the taillights.
I can't turn the yellow brake or parking lights on my 1998 Chevy blazer off and it's draining my battery.Could you please tell me which fuse or switch I'd use to disable the front yellow lights? This is happening even with the car off.
If you are referring to the brake lights it is probably a bad brake light switch. Your vehicle may also have daytime running lights which would be on without the parking lights.
Low beams are burned out.
I take it you mean day-time running lights? Place the parking brake on the first notch will turn them off and not apply the brake.
they are not brake lights they are fog lights and they turn on because it is for the car behind to see you
If your car has daytime running lights (standard in Canada) then the only way to turn on just the parking lights is when the car is in park or neutral, the light switch is in the park light position and the parking brake is on. Then the headlights will turn off. Any other configuration means the headlights will be on. On this car, parking lights can truly only be used when parked!
Ensure relays and parking brake switch are properly functioning.
somebody put a single filiment bulb in a dual receptacle socket or visa versa chech rear bulbs first
Often this type of behavior is caused by a bad ground for the lighting circuit. Check the ground circuit for the brake lights.
